Your Challenge

So you’ve achieved your first audit milestone. Hooray! Everyone on the team even high-fived each other.

But now you have to maintain your standing and prove to your customers and auditor that you’re continuing to meet your trust obligations. Staying trustworthy is a continuous process – one that requires that you regularly monitor your controls and continually adhere to them.

Keeping track of when a control needs to be reevaluated, and who needs to do it, is tedious and error-prone. This could result in your team going out of touch with the program they worked so hard to build, taking on risks by having stale information, and scrambling to get everything back in order in time for the next audit.

How We Solved Your Challenge

We’ve made it effortless for you to manage your controls and evidence on a regular basis, by introducing the concept of control frequency. Control frequency determines how frequently a control needs to be reevaluated, and evidence refreshed, for your business.

Control owners will automatically be reminded to submit fresh evidence on a regular basis. The frequency has been determined by security best practices. TrustOps also makes it easy for admins to see which controls have outdated evidence, so that they can remind the right team members to take action.
